The Power Coco Cactus Classic returns to the Sahuaro Ranch fields in Phoenix, Arizona. Five good Nationwide Conference teams from the west all have a chance to win this event. Sonny’s is an ‘A’ team based out of Wyoming and is the favorite and will have to beat Famous, 4 The Fallen, OC Swats, Classic Glass, West Coast Miken, AZM, and Mad Skills. Those are all the teams with a good chance at a Sunday finish in this Nationwide Conference tournament.
The weather will be hot and the competition should be fierce as there is a good collection of evenly matched teams this weekend. Last year, in the winners bracket final, the Saturday night battle between West Coast/Doerflinger and Team Combat that resulted in almost 100 runs. Then on Sunday West Coast scored 21 runs in the 7th inning to beat Team Combat for the championship.
ABOUT USSSA SLOW PITCH:

USSSA Slow Pitch ranges from Major Teams to purely Recreational Teams and offers several specialty divisions based on the common interests, experiences, and backgrounds of players.
